Unique Cabo San Lucas Weddings from Pueblo Bonito

One of the most frustrating things about planning a destination wedding is when your ultimate destination isn’t quite living up to your vision. For example, when you head to the venue’s blog and every wedding looks exactly the same. Same color palette. Same beach. Same cake. You want something with personality. Something exciting and beautiful, […]

Unique Geode Wedding Ideas

Okay, first order of business: geodes are cool. They make great bookends, they make great earth science projects (hey, elementary school), and they make incredible wedding decor. So if you’re in the market for some unique wedding ideas and agate accents, we know exactly where you can find them. Like right here, with these 13 geode-inspired wedding details.

Radiant orchid wedding ideas and geode plates and place settings

Geode Place Settings: Radiant Orchid may have been last year’s color, but that’s not stopping us from dreaming about these gorgeous geode place settings now. Now we just need to figure out where those plates came from. Don’t worry – as soon as we figure it out, we’ll let you know.

Unique wedding ideas with geode-inspired ceremony backdrop

DIY Ceremony Backdrop: While we’re on the subject, this huge geode-inspired ceremony backdrop (from the same shoot) is incredible. Just think how well that long white dress is going to pop against this non-traditional background.

Gold hand lettered table numbers on geodes

Gold Table Numbers: There’s not much to say about these hand-lettered gold geode table numbers except that we want them in all the weddings.

Southwestern inspired wedding cakes with geode cake toppers on wood slab cake stands

Fancy Cake Toppers: Who knew that Southwestern wedding details and geode cake toppers would be a match made in heaven? Fortunately, this bride did.

Green geode hanging installation for a wedding over a farm table with white and peach flowers and vintage green place settings

Unique Hanging Installation: We’re currently dreaming about making this gorgeous green agate slice hanging installation (originally created by La Boheme Events) ourselves. The simple slice and string idea would be a great DIY for hands-on brides to tackle.

Geode wedding favors and simple centerpieces for a wedding

Interactive Wedding Favors: A definite two-for-one deal, these geode wedding favors are a unique gift for guests to take home and an awesome way to provide some unique entertainment during cocktail hour or while you and your spouse are out and about with your photographer.

Simple two layer white wedding cake with geode cake toppers

Simple Cake Toppers: This sweet two-tier white cake and its accompanying stack of geodes are proof that decor (whether it includes crystalline rocks or not) doesn’t have to be extravagant to be completely elegant. Consider us smitten.

Eclectic wildflower centerpieces and gold hand-lettered agate slice escort cards

Agate Slice Escort Card: These gold handwritten agate slice name cards would be beautiful at a wedding of any size. Tuck them away at individual seats for guests to discover their own spot or set them out on a table near the entrance and add the table numbers to each “card.”

Bright pink and white flower arrangement and geode wedding favors

“You’re A Gem” Favors: Let your guests know exactly what you think of them with a sweet thank you sign and some extra-pretty geodes like the ones above.

Purple wedding invitations with geode pattern

Purple Wedding Invitations: These purple and white invitations channel geode vibes across every element from RSVP cards to envelope liners — and the result is stunning.

Light purple geode and raw diamond engagement ring

Styling Inspiration: Sometimes the best place to put your ring for that detail shot is right in the center of your favorite geode. Case in point.

Romantic place setting with gold flatware and geodes next to a rose and hydrangea centerpiece

Elegant Place Settings: This gorgeous place setting is just the place for a small slice of agate. The addition of the stone (which has its own dose of gold sparkle) makes for an unexpected but beautiful pairing of elegant details and natural elements.

Unique wedding decor with vintage centerpieces and geode details

Geode Centerpieces: If in doubt, piling gorgeous geodes and crystals in among your favorite thrifted decor is always a wedding win.

7 Unique Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day

7 Unique Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day


This year, thankfully, February 14th falls on a Saturday.  A holiday celebrating romance should just never fall on a week day. Ever.  Because “No more wine for me, honey. I have to get up early,” is a total bummer.  So, it’s terrific that this Valentine’s is on a weekend, leaving plenty of time for special dates and sweet nothings.

Dine Unconventionally

Anyone can make cocktails and steak dinners romantic, but what about blueberry pancakes?  Use the fact you have all day to dine out at places and times that the usual Valentine’s Day crowd may not.  Try that new brunch place down the street that has been getting all the raves, or even the food truck you used to meet at for lunch while you were dating.

Retro Kitsch

That disco roller rink is calling your name. Sip on blue raspberry Slush Puppies and soak up all of the cheesy fun.  Travel to that old drive-in theater several towns over and cuddle up with sodas and popcorn.  Or go the local drugstore that still has that gorgeous antique soda fountain. And yes, a shared straw in that chocolate malt is a must.

Outdoor Excursion

If the weather is decent (and this time of year, this is probably only true for half of us), spend some time outdoors. Wake up early and go for a short hike. If you are near the mountains, there’s no time like the present to strap on your skis or grab the sled.  Even if all the two of you do is window shop, fresh air is always a nice way to start the day.

Road Trip

You have the whole weekend, so jump in the car and head somewhere you’ve always wanted to take the time to see.  Just make sure that if you will be staying overnight, that you make a reservation first. Valentine’s Day is always a notoriously busy holiday for romantic bed and breakfasts and luxury hotels.

Be Tourists in Your Own City

It seems like we miss so much in our own cities until guests come to visit. Don’t wait–try out some of these fun activities now. In Seattle? Take a spin on the relatively new Great Wheel.  Washington D.C.? You haven’t visited the Smithsonian since that high school field trip.  Las Vegas? Break your strict “No Vegas Strip” policy and take a gondola ride at The Venetian. Find an activity you will both enjoy and don’t forget to Instagram all of the silliness along the way.

Scratch Something Off Your Bucket List

Sit down with your respective bucket lists (and if you don’t have one, why not start now?) and pick one thing you can check off together. From singing Streisand at a karaoke bar to jumping out of an airplane (yikes!), these fear conquering moments will be memorable and relationship-building.

Take a Class

Has your honey always wanted to learn how to brew his own beer? Would you love to be able to tango?  Search for classes that interest you in your area and arrange to take both over the course of the weekend. Learning about each other’s interests will be interesting–and who knows–you might even find a new hobby along the way.
